  • Nice, got to see the video for that.

    Also another race: Classica Sarda

    2 Emanuele Sella (Ita) Androni Giocattoli 0:00:02
    3 Peter Sagan (Svk) Liquigas-Cannondale 0:00:05
    4 Francesco Gavazzi (Ita) Lampre - ISD
    5 Oscar Gatto (Ita) Farnese Vini - Neri Sottoli
    6 Geraint Thomas (GBr) Great Britain National Team 0:00:11
    7 Robert Kiserlovski (Cro) Pro Team Astana 0:00:12
    8 Constantino Zaballa Gutierrez (Spa) Miche - Guerciotti 0:00:16

    10 Elia Favilli (Ita) Farnese Vini - Neri Sottoli 0:00:39

    Sella has been doing well this week, aggressive too, but then he has something he wants to show/prove.

    What sort of route does that race have? With Nibs and Cunego up near the front I assume it was pretty hilly in which case a decent result for Geraint especially if he has been preparing for the track.

    Yep, someone mentioned that last week. Seems a bit odd.

    No idea why either. At first I thought it was a special kit for Italy (like how Sky modified the logo for the Italian market last year) but this seems a completely seperate team. Odd.
    Fckin' Quintana … that creep can roll, man.

    Forgot his shorts?
  • ProssPross Posts: 22,124
    Perhaps just there to pass on his experience to the GB squad or maybe it is just part of his GB training regime for the track worlds?

    It's not just Thomas - From the race website:

    GREAT BRITAIN NATIONAL TEAM
    DIRETTORE SPORTIVO: KENT
    111 GERAINT THOMAS -
    112 KENNAUGH PETER -
    113 SWIFT BEN -
    114 CLANCY EDWARD -
    115 TENNANT ANDREW -
    116 ROWE LUKE -
    117 BURKE STEVEN -
    118 HARRISON SAM

    Interesting way to go about things - rather than team sky giving non-pro's stagaire opportunities they lend their top riders to other squads...

    PS, also participating was:
    TEAM RADIOSHACH
    DIRETTORE SPORTIVO: BRUUYNEEL JOHAN

    GB track squad endurance event riders preparing for World Track Champs apparently.

    Nice to see young Sam Harrison getting some racing in at that level, he's only in his first year as a senior!

    It was his first ever senior race! Apparently he was pretty nervous to say the least.......early toilet stops were required :D

    Pretty sure Burke, Clancy and a few others only lasted a couple of days.....

    One hell of a race for your first as a senior :shock: Luke Rowe did OK as well.

    I think it was a south-to-north 200km through the island. Quite lumpy in the second half of the race and Brutt would have been familiar with that terrain from one of the Giro d'Italia stages there in 2007 when he was in a long beak.

    If you're correct that's excellent knowledge.
  • Great ride by Sella in Sarda. A shame he just got nabbed in the last 500m.

    Btw, see that Geraint was on the back the entire time until the last 1km.
